Booked my daughter 3 surf lessons and she loved it. The instructors were great and she was really chuffed that she could stand up on her board by the end of the first lesson. She is looking forward to more lessons next summer. Thanks St Ives Surf School you are Fab!

I booked my children on a beginner's lesson and they loved it so much they went back for more! The instructors were absolutely superb and there was a really lovely friendly feel to the whole school. We can't wait to book in for next summer.

The staff were all friendly and helpful, and gave good value for a 2 hour lesson. The lesson covered safety aspects and techniques to get started. Lovely water to surf in. Went on to hire equipment from a different company on a different beach, another day, which was nowhere near as good.

This is a must do attraction for the family. All the instructors are friendly and very encouraging; at the end of the first lesson we were all standing on our boards (even if only for a limit time)! We booked a series of lessons and improved every day with their excellent tutoring. The kids pick it up really quickly and... More

We absolutely loved our surf lesson - all of the team were so helpful and friendly and put their all into making the experience enjoyable and worthwhile. We had Luis teaching us who was really friendly and helpful and really cared about getting us up and catching a wave! Perfect with the kids but great for us adult beginners too... More

My son was so enthusiastic about his surf school experience that (under my supervision) he wanted to write his own review. From a parents perspective, all staff were friendly, professional and we had absolute confidence that our children were in safe hands in the sea( even on a particularly choppy day).This is the review: The staff were all very friendly...
